LUV your Skin

While we need sunlight to live, it can also be very damaging to our health if we get too much of it.

LUVing your skin means significantly reducing your risk of skin cancer by exposing yourself to Less Ultra Violet.

Thanks to SunSense, even those at higher risk of skin damage can enjoy the sun.

Wearing a high-factor sunscreen every day helps protect against the sun’s potentially harmful UVA and UVB radiation, which can cause sunburn, pigmentation premature aging, wrinkles, and skin cancers.2

For some people, the sun is more of a pain than a pleasure. Certain people are more susceptible to developing problems such as sunburn, pigmentation and skin cancers. 2,3

Skin type is one of the main factors that determine the risk of skin burn.3 From light (highest risk) to dark skin (lower risk), there are six skin types that correlate with a person’s susceptibility to sunburn.4

Factors that pose higher risks for skin cancer include;

  • Personal or family history of skin cancer.5,6
  • A history of sunburns or indoor tanning.5
  • Blonde or red hair.5
  • A large number of moles.5,6
  • People using immunosuppressive drugs.6
  • Those with conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.
  • Exposure to the sun through work or play.
  • Fair – or very fair – skin types, which burn easily.5,6
  • Light-coloured eyes.5
  • Patients with autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
  • Patients undergoing or recovering from, radiotherapy.

For these people, it is particularly important to apply a sunscreen and use other sun protective measures.
